Re: What do you think Asuka had learned during​ Instrumentality?

You say there's no way, and yet it happened all the same, therefore there was a way.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Supposedly, my bf and I are watching Turn A Gundam now, though we haven't watched any episodes in a couple of weeks or so. It was my idea, mostly because it sounded weird and I wanted to see Kanno's soundtrack in context. The setting gives me super Studio Ghibli vibes, like if they made a giant robo...

Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender (WTF is your avatar/sig from?)

I got bored of having no avatar and waiting for one to pop out at me. So I just went ahead and picked out something while I was organizing my archives a bit. Tis Guu from Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu wearing her typical dull, ambiguous expression. Jeepers, it's been forever since I watched that.

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

You seem to accept that most people don't like the movies, but you won't accept the diversity of reasons that exist for not liking them. If you expect anyone to take your own opinions about the film(s) seriously, then at bare minimum you need to acknowledge other people's opinions rather than mental...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Has it occurred to you that (most) people dislike the DC Snyder movies simply because they're incompetent films, not because they don't want "bold attempts at creativity" or "serious, somber [and] adult" cinematic fare? Surely you've been in enough variations of this conversation...

Re: Nerv Nevada, S2 Engine Installation, Sabotage?

Far as a pilot goes, it's a fic so you really can do whatever you want. Gives you a chance to flex your creativity and see how one could possibly be justified outside of the Marduk Institute's jurisdiction. Though you would still need to determine why a pilot would be required for an S2 engine start...

Re: Transformers 4+: We Deserve Better Than Michael Bay

Revived it (with a now-genericized title) because a string of Transformers posts was forming in the trailers thread, and having a TF thread makes sense anyway. This one fit the anti-Bay sentiment of GP's posts all the way down to the 90's Batman comparison. Chances of fire breaking out again seem sl...

Reopened the previous Transformers thread and moved the related string of posts from here to there. (If I were less lazy I would scour this thread for additional things to move -- maybe later.)

Re: Why didn't Shinji finish Asuka off in EOE?

I don't think that Asuka returned to [a state of] individuality exhibiting any real improvement either, but it would also be unrealistic to expect this, I think. Unlike Shinji, who [was] allowed to maintain self-awareness during the process of Instrumentality, Asuka was given no such privilege and ...

Re: Why didn't Shinji finish Asuka off in EOE?

The only things Asuka gets to do after returning from HIP: - Kick down her grave marker (implied) - Make the choice to lie next to Shinji (implied) - Lie there catatonically while he tries to kill her - Caress his face before he finishes the job - Stare coldly at her would-be murderer while he sobs ...

Re: The most disturbing moment in Evangelion

pwhodges , you keep saying that Asuka cannot be an "Angel", despite 1. Me never actually saying that. 2. Lilin turning out to be Angels All Along in NGE, thereby nullifying any objections you're making on the grounds of that word anyway. I feel the only reasonable conclusion to arrive upo...

Re: Is the destination of this forum becoming a '' file drawer ''?

I still have a number of fresh or reinvigorated takes on topics brewing in my brain, but at this point it typically requires JUST THE RIGHT conversation partner to successfully draw them out of me. I'm not as young and hypomanic as I used to be; it's easier to just keep quiet most of the time.

Re: Nerv Nevada, S2 Engine Installation, Sabotage?

Asuka being classified Second Children in Germany establishes a precedent for a hypothetical American Eva-04 pilot to receive a designation as well. However, this clearly did not happen. I would assume that there was no pilot, and only the S2 was being tested. I actually wonder if they put S2 testin...

Re: Theory: Asuka is a Cyborg

Angel-sealing tech is used on Evas as well. (Also on Shinji at the very beginning of 3.0.) Because, well... Think about it. ( I don't actually think the Eva is responsible for the EYE, I'm just saying.) You have yet to explain how "psychological contamination" would make someone's eye glow...
